    Like I was saying a couple of weeks ago, killing Zarqwai was a tipping point. The Sunni's recognize that the IRaqi gov is in place, Sunni Defense Minister in place. They are looking get good surrender terms. Al Queda will be hung out to dry.

    It'll be Bush's fault, when we win.

    I do think we're past the tipping point now and will get the job done. The big question is whether a democratic and improved Iraq will help make the middle east more stable than when we went in.

    We won't be past the tipping point until we can leave. The view of many Iraqis is that their current government is being propped up by the Americans, and will collapse once the Americans leave. That said, it does look like real progress has been made in the last month or two, plus I read that oil output is approaching pre-invasion levels. I think it's still too early to tell whether the insurgents are regrouping, changing their strategy, or truly weakened.

    The Democratic Party is all washed up, their hatred did them in.

    Rebuild the Democratic party and many of us will return, until then they can kiss my White A$s.

    I had not heard about this and I certainly hope that it is true.

    I do too.

    One of the biggest benefits of having a stable Iraq is that they won't be funding or training terrorist.

    We are at war with terrorist and no just Al Quida. Islamic extremist terrorism is a snake with many heads and Al Quida is just one of those heads.

    Many have asked what has Iraq had to do with the WOT. Under Saddam, Iraq had been funding, supporting, and training terrorist. Salman Pak was a terrorist training camp. They even had a 707 parked there so they could train on taking over airliners.

    Now, some will argue that there was no direct link to Al Quida and they are right in saying there is no proven direct link. However, it doean't matter as no one knows once a terrorsit is trained where they will end up.

    This is the difference between having a pre-9/11 world view and a post 9/11 world view. If Al Quida is defeated tomorrow the WOT will still go on. There will just be one less counrty that is funding, supporting, and training terrorist.

    That makes the whole Iraq invasion worth it.
